My grandpa and I's annual exchange of Halloween jest. He'll always write to check up on my dating status, and I'll always respond with a note and a package of cookies, because who doesn't love a little grandpa humor?

Happy haunting!

make your own

The perfect snack for a chilly Sunday afternoon? A buttery slice of egg-in-a-hole, otherwise known as Sunny Yolk! Sunny Yolk is a recipe from the Fitwits program, "a multidisciplinary collaboration among doctors, teachers, social workers, and design students at Carnegie Mellon University" working to educate children on the benefits of healthy eating and physical fitness. Learn more about the program here and here...

"Every child should be taught to cook in school, not just talk about nutrition all day. Good food can be made in 15 minutes. This could be the first generation where the kids teach the parents."
--Jamie Oliver, The Minister of Food

what is a book?

A book is many many things...These scans don't do justice to this treasure I've plucked from the MCAD Library. Neon pink, orange, yellow, and white, it reminds me of the work of this ever-inspiring wordsmith.

I'm trying to re-affirm my love affair with books and words, as these internet sub-realities drag my attention away. Have you read any good books lately? Is there a book that has changed your life?
